Fun spot with small dishes so you can try a lot! Something for everyone on the menu, and the fusion is great, plus lots of pisco to choose from.

The fusion food was ok. Service was pretty good. I made a reservation and was asked if it was for a special occasion. I communicated it was for a birthday. However, they never acknowledged the birthday during our visit.

We were waiting for a table inside and a couple that arrived after us got seated first with no explanation!
However what your hostess failed to accomplish a warm welcome was done at the table by Madeline from El Salvador!
Recommend the perfect wine Albariño with our food!
Last but not least your new chef brought us the most delicious desert! He and Madeline ooze in hospitality!
Great meal with my better half!

After I saw that octopus teacher documentary I decided I was never going to eat octopus again. Then I tried the ceviche de pulpo and it was so good I would personally butcher an octopus myself just to have it again. The rest of the menu was equally amazing. Shouts out to our server nick and the rest of the staff for super excellent service. The pallets hanging from the ceiling made me nervous but they looked cool. This place is exceptionally dope.

So tasty! Went with 3 adventurous adults and 2 kids. We loved the lazy Susan so that we could all share our plates. Everyone loved sampling each other’s plates. Wish we lived closer so we could eat there more often.

Food was really good. The presentation could have been better, but the taste was great. The desert looked like a cow pie, the condensed milk desert. I mean, I had to Google it to make sure I wasn't mistaken. It was delicious, but not the right visual to have. I feel like someone should have said something about this to the chef. To pipe a brown thick creamy desert into the shape of a flat circular shape with an iced fruit puree on top of it...

Angel was a great waiter, we got descriptions and recommendations that were on point. There's no better feeling to have your expectations exceeded when it comes to food quality and taste. We tried 2 octopus ceviches, leche de tigre, lomo saltado, and crispy rice that was out of this world. Every was authentic, fresh, and meticulously made. Would go back in a heartbeat. Only would have liked for the a/c to had been colder, it was a hot day, then again they might have just turned it one since I visited during the opening dinner shift.

My table was put in a corner of the restaurant without air conditioning. The rest of the restaurant had no ventilation problem and I was not permitted to change tables.

The staff at China Chilcano was very friendly and the restaurant is centrally located. The menu has a nice variety of dishes, almost making it hard to choose. The food came out hot, fresh and delicious. We especially loved the fried yucca appetizer. We hope to visit again the next time we are back in DC.

China Chilcano was a perfect place to meet up with an old friend - warm, casual ambiance with acceptable noise level. Food was inventive, fresh and tasty! Our server was attentive without being obtrusive. I’ll be back as there were many menu items I’d like to try!

Food was good and the waitress could not have been nicer, but I wasn’t aware the restaurant closes at 11 until we sat for our 10:45 reservation… I don’t understand why they would offer reservations that only allow 15 minutes for dinner.
